Easy Dinners Menu Plan

Can you believe it’s already the first of July. It seems the summer is going by fast. Does it feel that way to you too? When you are busy doing fun stuff it’s easy to not think about dinner until right before you need to eat. But having a meal plan can help you get dinner done and still have fun too. 

Need a few easy dinner ideas? See what’s cooking at our house this week below.

Happy 4th of July to you. A few days early.  I hope your holiday will filled with delicious food too.

This week’s menu plan will include our holiday dinner of traditional hamburgers and hot dogs prepared on our wood-fired grill, with some delicious side dishes for the 4th.

The rest of the week I have planned easy dinners. One easy dinner I like to make is breakfast for dinner. It’s fast and easy to make and delicious too. Plus no one ever complains about what’s for dinner when we are having breakfast for dinner.

If it’s hot later in the week, I’ll be making our pizza on the grill or making skillet pizza pockets instead of oven baked pizza. This time of year it can go from warm weather to downright hot in just a day or two. I’ll just wait to see when the day comes to decide.

And if you haven’t tried the teriyaki chicken sandwiches yet, they are so good. Grab the recipe below and give them a try.

I love how easy these cinnamon twist scones are to make. They are as easy to mix up as biscuits, but turn out looking so fancy. Great for breakfast or brunch when company is coming over. They are also a frugal breakfast recipe costing only $.10 each. My family gobbles these up every time I made them.
